Member Stories

Chad Williams, Top Notch Computer Support

“In 2011 my business was going nowhere, so I decided to join the West Chamber. Within the first month, I made so many connections that it really helped get my business off the ground. Now, 4 years later, my business is going strong because of the West Chamber, and the connections keep growing. This is a great place to start and/or grow a business.”
